A Delicious Hands-on Lunch Tour in Old San Juan
2011-07-04 01:00:00
Flavors of San Juan offers a really nice tour that just might give you that little push that you'll need to try cooking a Puerto Rican meal on your own at home. It starts out as a guided tour around Old San Juan — where you learn all sorts of history — and it finishes up with you making a local dish (Mofongo) as part of your lunch. It is called a Hands-On Lunch Tour, it was yummy, and I have been inspired to try my hand at some Puerto Rican cooking!Continue reading this article → A Delicious Hands-on Lunch Tour in Old San Juan Are you on Facebook?

I admit that one of the fun things I love about living on an island is the rum. And Puerto Rico is quite the island for rum — called the Rum Capital of the World. So, for me, one of the most wonderful times of the year is the annual Taste of Rum Festival. The 2011 Taste of Rum Festival will be held March 19 and 20th. As in years past, there will be rum to sample, food prepared with rum to taste, rum-related seminars and competitions, as well as live music to get your rum-infused body moving.Continue reading this article → Another Taste of Rum Are you on Facebook?

Solar Cargo ship launched!
2008-12-24 07:47:00
The world's first cargo ship partly propelled by solar power took to the seas on Friday in Japan, aiming to cut fuel costs and carbon emissions when automakers ship off their exports.The huge freighter, capable of carrying 6400 automobiles, is equipped with 328 solar panels at a cost of $1.68-million, the officials said. Company officials said the 60 213-ton, 200-metre-long ship is the first large vessel in the world with a solar-based propulsion system. So far solar energy has been limited to supporting lighting and crew's living quarters. The solar power system can generate 40 kilowatts, which would initially cover only 0.2 percent of the ship's energy consumption for propulsion, but company officials said they hoped to raise the ratio.source: iafrica.comFull ArticleThe shipping industry has come under growing pressure to take part in efforts to curb global warming, which is blamed on carbon emissions and this is certainly a welcome step!

A Career Move from Ship to Shore
2008-11-09 12:02:00
Seafarers are sometimes required to move ashore, maybe to take their skills into a shipping company?s office, to give up the roaming life due to poor and deteriorating health, to appease the nagging wife or to simply climb to the next rung of the ladder. Whatever the reason that provokes the move it is hard to do none-the-less thus the reason why many talk about it but never actually get around to doing anything.I gave up seafaring after twenty-five years of ploughing the ocean waves, a mixture of ?appeasing the nagging wife?, a climb up the next rung of the ladder and because I was royally fed up of not being there when my young son had a birthday, when he uttered his first words and managed to pee into the toilet without spraying the carpet first! All these things provoked me to make a subtle change in my lifestyle and career and without looking back I applied for jobs ashore, got a job ashore and moved ashore thus closing the door on a long, excitable and an extremely enjoyable c...
